Taking place in the spring, the Salmon Run is one of the first running events of the season and the essential tip-off to the local racing scene in Central Oregon. Traversing beautiful dirt and paved trails amongst junipers and pines, the race course winds through some of the most scenic natural areas in Bend and finishes on the lawn Riverbend Park. Make a weekend of it!  Bring the kids for the Little Fry Run too!  Distances include the HALF MARATHON (13.1 miles), 10K, and 5K races. All courses weave along the beautiful Deschutes River on trails and some pavement.
